I am sitting here at my desk smiling at this sight out the window. Tis merely a boring puddle you say, but it has been ages since we've seen one. Yes, it is raining!
I like to think about how I am to go about tasks for quite a while before I actually commence, thus my etchings of thought processes and measurements stretched to be quite a few pages long. I have 9 windows to make curtains for, one window is complete and I'm halfway through the second window. It's going well albeit slowly.
We will be buying a small box trailer in a couple of weeks and this will open things up a lot for us, making it easy to go and get a load of cow poo from the local dairy, or buy some bales of hay. Steve will be able to get his little tinny in the water eventually. For now we are taking things slowly, getting used to having a four wheel drive, and trying not to embarrass ourselves by getting stuck somewhere that we were not experienced enough to have been in the first place. We did our first four wheel drive track yesterday, one that Steve knew was very easy, and I am proud to announce that we came out of it unscathed. Well done Steve.

Almost 15 years ago these two little fluffpots came into our lives, 2 sisters from the same litter of Miniature Schnauzers. On the left is Maxie and on the right is Pepper.
During 2012, Pepper's health deteriorated. We didn't want to take her to the vet, knowing in our hearts what was going be said to us. Finally, after a bad week we took her and on Thursday the 7th of February 2013, Pepper was peacefully and gently put to sleep while the tears poured. It is just not the same around here, I keep seeing her out of the corner of my eye, and the tears flowed again last night when I forgot and went to sweep some grated cheese on the floor for her, she absolutely loved cheese.
So this little fluffball here, the runt of her litter, lived for a fortnight off 15 years.
She lived her life quietly and cutely, very much a homebody, liking nothing more than a good snooze.
Goodbye baby girl, you're with Maxie now at Rainbow Bridge. xx
